Austrian government proposes EU-wide crowd work guidelines


June 8, 2017

The Austrian government intends to initiate a process to develop EU-wide guidelines for crowd work during Austria’s tenure in the presidency of the EU in the second half of 2018.

“Employees are concerned about developments in this area, and we must face the new developments toward increased precarity. We need new, fair rules — to support and enable crowd work, but also that ensure fair payment and good working conditions,” said Muna Dudzar, Austrian State Secretary responsible for digitalization in a June 2017 press release.
